Kalgoorlie Miner - - NEWS - Perth

The West Aus­tralian en­vi­ron­ment min­is­ter has hand­picked three ex­perts to con­duct a re­view into the En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Agency’s de­ci­sion to ap­prove a con­tro­ver­sial high­way through wetlands in Perth’s south.

The re­view team will be headed by en­vi­ron­ment and plan­ning bar­ris­ter Peter Quin­lan and as­sisted by bar­ris­ter Eric Heenan and le­gal prac­ti­tioner Su­nili Govin­nage.

The re­view was an­nounced in De­cem­ber af­ter the EPA’s stamp of ap­proval for the $1.6 bil­lion Roe 8 pro­ject was deemed in­valid by the courts. AAP
